Question: PDE solver Maple vs Mma


I recently moved to a new research institute and have to make a decision on either buy a licence for Maple or Mathematica. My needs are PDE hyperbolic system (e.g. shallow water, tsunami...) resolution and when possible export to standalone C/Fortran code based on package like MathPDE.

I know a little of Mathematica, but have a bunch of notebooks. I tried with the help of MapleSoft support to import them into Maple with no success so far.

So as I'm not tied to any of both, I have the impression that I would be more comfy with Mma but Maple is cheaper and seems more open. Is there any rationals for picking one over the other?
